To reinvent objects, making them unique, transforming them into something new and fascinating. Above all, to recover obsolete materials, making them into original products of contemporary design. These are the goals of the first exhibition “in progress” done by internationally renowned artists, from Martino Gamper to Harry Thaler, along with emerging young talents. A complete process, from the making of the works by the artists to the encounter with the audience and then with the market. The selected designers have been asked to send their works or to make them directly in Bolzano. All the works will be presented in the setting of the Countdownplatform, in an exhibition in progress. The initiative is aimed at Italian and international, famous or emerging artists and designers, as well as students. All proposals should be sent to: submission@countdown–design.com. The event concludes with a public auction held on 17 Marchduring the Biennial of Contemporary Art of Bolzano. The auction will be organized by Bozner Kunstauktionen, one of the most important auction houses in the region. www.countdown-design.com.
